My 11 yr old, 13 yr old, and 8 yr old were sitting around talking, and something came up about when I got married. I mentioned the fact that I was pregnant with my 13 yr old. My dh and I have always been very open about that, and addressed it in a positive way. We loved each other. We were both ready to be parents. Everyone in the family was looking forward to having a new baby. etc.
I wouldn't have wanted to hide it in the first place, but even if I had, I was already showing when we got married. So as we are talking about it, my 11 yr old says, "Yeah, but you didn't want people to know you were pregnant." I was shocked. I told him that everyone knew I was pregnant and happy about it, and went through the whole list again. I asked him why he thought that and he said he was just joking. He was not joking.
My head is spinning a bit as to where he came up with this or where he heard it. I'm wondering if he said something to a friend or something and he got a negative reaction. I'm thinking I should just let it go at this point, but I'm not sure. He's not a really sharing type kiddo, so he wasn't really interested in discussing it. I just want to make sure that he knows that's not true. Any advice on how to handle it from here?
